    Interventionism would have kept WW2 alot smaller than it was. Intervention has proved it's worth in the modern world. A half million Americans died during WW2. We haven't lost nowhere near tht many in every conflict since. Would you rather just wait and let them all die at one time and quadriple the numbers in the process?

    Gitmo is about protecting the homeland. At Gitmo, we have an LP/OP (listening post/observation post) to observe everything coming in and out of the GOM. Why wouldn't we want that advantage? Seems to me that we wouldn't want enemy subs sinking American ships in the GOM, like the Germans did during WW2. Just a thought.

    Really? What crimes have they been imprisoned for? Is it a normal course of action to house prisoners, indefinitely, in the U.S., without even charging them with a crime or giving them a trial? In what world is that acceptable?

    Oh, wait. It would be acceptable IN CUBA. Is that what we've become?

    These guys should've been put on trial during the Bush years. Obama needs to either charge these guys or release them.

    Their tombstones indicate that they were German soldiers, so yes.
